A Sweet Shop in Jenin

When I first arrived in Jenin (Palestine), a man riding on a bicycle was calling out to me, asking me where I was from. I couldn’t believe it that the third country name he shouted out was “Belize!”, which is indeed where I was born. Then I saw a magnificent sweetshop which I am happy to remember in this song. Feel free to pick out solos, duets, trios etc. within this song.

Jenin is pronounced Ǧinīn.
